Summary: Mystery and controversy surround the wild horses that cling to the barrier islands of the Atlantic coast. Each population has its own character, its own history and its own set of problems and concerns. Each has made a unique contribution to local culture. This book moves from the present circumstances of the horses to management concerns, history, and genetics,as well as what these horses signify and what they tell us about ourselves. The result is a vivid portrait of threatened animals and the changing islands that they have made their home. Codice inventario libreria

Riassunto:
AWARD WINNING!
Tirades and threats. Hyperbole and deception. Changing landscapes and immutable opinions. Living traditions and dead animals. The conflicts that rage around the wild horses of the Atlantic coast can be loud, confusing, and downright vicious. Wild horses have lived on these barrier islands for hundreds of years, and many people would like to see them remain. Horse advocates and horse detractors alike turn to research to support their claims, but often reach different conclusions from the same information.

Engaging the reader at every turn of the page, Bonnie Gruenberg frequently breaks new ground as she separates fact from myth and exposes the roots of issues for the reader to consider. She does not flinch from probing questions: Are these horses wild or feral? Native or exotic? Were Chincoteague Ponies used in bioweapons research? Did the U.S. Coast Guard patrol East Coast beaches with Western mustangs in WWII? How does the condition of lactating mares predict environmental health? She weaves a story of ancient origins and current events, hard science and fiery passion. The result is the most comprehensive and factual reference on the wild horses of the Atlantic coast.
